so i am guessing that after you get your Graphics card, and PSU.
Your next purchase would be a new CPU?

I saw your workstation pic in the gallery thread, you have a micro ATX case, correct? The 9800GTX is 10.5" long, there is very little chance that it will fit.

Just go with the 9800GT, it's more than enough for 1280x1024, it's cheaper, it's only 9" long, and YES, you will be able to play Crysis Warhead. I just finished that game BTW, it was one of the worst games I've ever played in my life, especially the cut scenes.
